I put my weight against the weather
I lay my hands upon the wheel
But they're only holy harlots
So I try not to feel the winds blow

The winds blow

And the wheels turn to the city
and my mind turns back and sees
you climbing into my bed
with the dirt brushed off your feet

Winds do howl, winds do howl

And if the heart's a lonely hunter
then my eyes are lyin' thieves
that keep me from your fingers
climbing up my sleeve

Winds do howl, winds do howl

And your naked shoulders tell me
that I'm awfully close to sin
Praise the good Lord that Jehovah
doesn't know where you have been

Winds do howl, winds do howl

And there were roots down in the river
back when I was just a boy
and there was something pure within me
that just ain't pure no more

Winds have howled, red winds howl
